HARWINTON, CT (WFSB) -

Firefighters in Harwinton rescued a cow that really wanted to take a dip in a swimming pool on Sunday.

They said they were called to a home on Locust Road around 6 p.m.

The cow apparently wandered onto the swimming pool cover and fell through.

It took heavy rope and a dozen people to pull the cow out.

The Harwinton Volunteer Fire Department posted a couple of photos to its Facebook page.

Firefighters said the animal was walking after the ordeal and didn't appear to have suffered any injuries.
